Joseph Harris Murder Trial Resumes in Albemarle

Posted: Updated:

A 7-year-old murder case is back before a judge and jury in Albemarle County.  Joseph Harris is facing six felony charges, including first-degree murder and robbery.

The trial picked back up after it was postponed last month, following a judge's ruling that allowed a tape from a jailhouse snitch to be used.

Prosecutors say Harris robbed and killed Anthony Lorenzo Johnson back in 2005.  Johnson's body was found face down in a parking lot in Darden Towe Park.

The case is expected to wrap up on Friday.
